Avandia 

Indication

Avandia (Rosiglitazone) belongs to the class of medications called thiazolidinediones. It is used to lower the high blood sugar associated with Type 2 Diabetes. Avandia (Rosiglitazone) reduces levels of blood glucose (sugar in the blood) by helping insulin to work more effectively and allowing the cells of the body to take glucose in more easily. The full effects of Avandia (Rosiglitazone) are usually seen within 8 to 12 weeks.

Avandia (Rosiglitazone) is used to lower blood glucose when diet, exercise, and weight reduction have not lowered blood glucose levels enough on their own. It is used for people who cannot take other oral (taken by mouth) diabetes medications or in cases where these medications are not effective. Lowering and controlling blood glucose levels may help prevent or delay complications of diabetes such as heart disease, Kidney Disease, or blindness.

Avandia (Rosiglitazone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Avandia (Rosiglitazone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Avandia (Rosiglitazone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Avandia (Rosiglitazone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Avandia (Rosiglitazone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Avandia (Rosiglitazone) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Avandia (Rosiglitazone) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Avandia (Rosiglitazone) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Avandia 

Dosage

The dose of Avandia (Rosiglitazone) will vary according to the circumstances of the person taking it. The average starting dose is 4 mg once daily or 2 mg twice daily. After 8 to 12 weeks, your doctor may increase the dose to 8 mg once daily or 4 mg twice daily, if necessary.

Avandia (Rosiglitazone) may be taken with or without food.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Avandia (Rosiglitazone) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule.

If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

It is important to follow your doctor's instructions regarding blood glucose monitoring to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from the medication.

Store Avandia (Rosiglitazone) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.
